Romance in a kids show isn't ok

Of course, like many other shows, there is a an adult chester writer that decides a romance needs to happen between two characters in a kids show. And kissing. This isn't "real life" or normal for all kids. Disappointed.

Great show

I wouldnt reccomend this for anyone under ten, mostyly becuase on some scary scenes. But my 12 year old son loved it, and i think its a great sequel to the origional series.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (7 ):

It's tempting to wonder if the world really needed another spinoff of the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, but this series is actually super fun for kids and grown-ups alike. Dragons: The Nine Realms has a great mixture of awesome dragon scenes, teenage friendships, and scientific mystery. Kids will love lead character Tom and his brave, curious persona (though grown-ups may wish he listened to adults a bit more). The rest of his friends are interesting characters that kids will identify with, and they'll also love the unique dragons they befriend. Like the rest of the Dragons world, the stunning animation and scenery in Nine Realms really bring the fantastical beasts to life. Families who enjoyed the original movies will have a great time watching this series together.
